French Creek Valley Conservancy

The French Creek Valley Conservancy is a private 501(c)3 non-profit land trust dedicated to maintaining and enhancing the exceptional water quality, natural habitat, biological diversity and recreational opportunities of the French Creek Watershed in Northwest Pennsylvania. We are nationally accredited through the Land Trust Alliance (LTA). Our work in land protection, stewardship, education and community outreach is supported by our members, donors and partners. Our small staff is guided by a Board of Directors comprised of concerned citizens who value the watershed.

As an accredited land trust, the French Creek Valley Conservancy works with landowners who voluntarily wish to protect the conservation values of their property. These values include wildlife, unique natural areas, forests, agricultural lands and the overall health of French Creek and its tributaries. Protected properties help to ensure the watershed will not be adversely developed while wildlife, habitat and water quality is preserved and public access to recreational opportunities are protected.
